I was very proud that the Bonsai Series mentioned in my last post is finally materializing. I have more than 200 plus reference pictures as source material from a trip to the Chicago Botanical Garden. When I enlarge the compositions to 11" X 14" or 16"X 20" I am thinking of including an artifact along with the post. One of the images from my MA show had a little insence burner that has popped up in some work from time to time. I think that will be one artifact to use.
My art is slow going as I work full time and art time is hard to come by. However,I have another sketch for the sunflower series that I started a while ago. I guess that deserves a post. :-) The sketch is for Sunflowers 4 (working title) and I have "Sunflowers 3" (title) sketched, a little watercolor pencil study and the drawing on the canvas ready to paint.
I started with one then two and now three and four are in progress. I am not sure if the number pattern will continue, but I do love sunflowers.
Laura Lein-Svencner, Collage artist, has inspired me to try collage. http://www.lonecrowart.blogspot.com/ I think the sunflower 3 wc pencil study will be a part of my first one. I just need to prep my papers.
The telesummit I did with Creative Souls Unleashed run by Tamra Fleming http://www.creativesoulstelesummit.com/ gave me a boost too. The Creative Souls Unleashed facebook page is still up and continues to give great creative avenues to follow. Some nuts and boltsstuff, but with a creative bent, and then pure fun art stuff and creative people. I
encourage my creative soul friends to look it up on Facebook.
